Film Soundtrack Recording Session – Behind the Scenes View

I had the privilege to record 4 demo soundtracks with the New York University session players over the last two years. My first session featured 5 instruments, the second session – 11, then I got to record with the string orchestra, and finally, with the symphony orchestra.

The present video captures the recording session with the string orchestra and harp with me (composer) as a conductor. The film excerpt comes from The Cathedral by Pixar (directed by Tomek Bagiński). The recording took place in the Frederick Loewe Theatre in Manhattan in November 2010.
